How do you cite a newspaper article?
This page reflects guidance from the sixth edition of the Publication Manual.
Example (print version):
Schwartz, J. (1993, September 30). Obesity affects economic, social status. The Washington Post, pp. A1, A4.
Precede page numbers for newspaper articles with p. or pp.
- If an article appears on discontinuous pages, give all page numbers, and separate the numbers with a comma (e.g., pp. B1, B3, B5–B7).
Example (electronic version):
Brody, J. E. (2007, December 11). Mental reserves keep brain agile. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com
Give the URL of the home page when the online version of the article is available by search to avoid nonworking URLs.
